Billy & Elton: The Legacy – Part of Silver City Days
May 13 @ 7:30 pm–9:30 pm PDT
ELTON JOHN and BILLY JOEL are two of the greatest voices, songwriters and performers of our time. Celebrate this Silver City Days with both tribute icons, on piano, up close, at The Bailey Theatre. Tickets $25. Throughout his career, Elton John has sold 100 million singles worldwide, making him one of the biggest selling music artists of all time. He has had 57 top 40 hits in the United States, second only to Elvis Presley, including classics “Your Song”, “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”, “Rocket Man” and “Tiny Dancer”. Twenty seven of these songs hit the top ten and nine reached number one, including “Candle in the Wind”, “Bennie & the Jets”, and “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me”. BILLY JOEL is no slouch himself. Across the years of his solo career, Joel produced 33 self-penned Top 40 hits in the U.S., three of which reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100 charts (“It’s Still Rock and Roll to Me”, “Tell Her About It”, and “We Didn’t Start the Fire”). Since his first show in 1978, Billy has performed more than 100 shows at Madison Square Garden, including an unprecedented 12 consecutive sold-out shows that have earned Billy a spot among the Garden greats with a banner raised in his honor. Taking on the role of ELTON JOHN is singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Mick Dalla-Vee. Mick went from self-taught guitarist to lead singer, bassist, guitarist and keyboard player and very busy studio producer, musician, arranger and vocalist. Mick has played bass and been lead singer for Canadian rock legend Randy Bachman, of The Guess Who and Bachman Turner Overdrive, for over 20 years. He has received platinum and gold awards for his work on albums as diverse as Motley Crüe, Trooper, and Bachman & Turner. Artfully mastering the music of BILLY JOEL İs lifelong entertainment professional Michael Sicoly. Michael began with a passion for music before being bitten by the acting bug. He has recorded jingles for clients including MacDonald’s, Shell Oil, A&W, and Proctor & Gamble and has appeared on TV in MacGyver, The Commish, The Amy Fisher Story, The Black Stallion (co-starring with Mickey Rooney) and Fly By Night. These are solo sets without a band where Both “Billy” and “Elton” will play alone and perform songs together. Watch the video for the show https://youtu.be/bq-CrAYQMw0.
